Careers

Job growth has been strong in the environmental fields in recent years, as the impact of human activities on the environment has come under greater public and political scrutiny. After completing your studies at UNE, you might pursue a position in air and water resource management, ecological restoration, education, habitat conservation, park management, toxicology, field research, journalism, environmental advocacy, environmental impact assessment, environmental law and regulation, or environmental health.

You might work for a government environmental agency, a nonprofit group, an environmental consulting firm, or a private company seeking to comply with environmental laws and regulations through environmentally responsible policies and procedures. If you opt to follow the Secondary Education Track available to majors in our department, you might also pursue a position as a middle school or high school science teacher.

You may also pursue an advanced degree in one of the environmental disciplines.
